    Most of them are nothing more than news readers and talking heads. But a few of them are bona fide journalists. I think MSNBC's Brian Williams--of The News With Brian Williams, and the heir apparent to Tom Brokaw's throne--is the best of 'em all. He is a genuine journalist, a true wit, and just plain knows his stuff. Not a dummy, Mr. Williams. I think he's the best on television.
    You?
    (I bet if this becomes a thread it dies an early death!)

    Tom Brokaw. [​IMG] I have to give him the nod because he's the only anchorperson that regularly visits/lives in Montana. He makes it a point to be actively involved in our community. If you watch NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, you'll notice that he often has a short news story covering Montana.

    I'm also fairly impressed with Brian Williams, and the sooner he replaces Brokaw, the better. He's extremely quick-witted and funny, which is especially noticeable when he guests on a talk show.
    Peter Jennings is by far my favorite among the "big three" anchors. Like Williams he's fairly intelligent and, in contrast with Rather and Brokaw, seems positively brilliant. Again in contrast with Rather and Brokaw, he doesn't seem to be a transparent, uncritical establishment shill.

    Bill Oreilly from Fox News. Very witty and he always tells it like it is.

    Jim Lehrer. Brian Williams is good too. No one in Fox "News" should be taken too seriously. [​IMG]

    I've always been partial to Peter Jennings. I simply like his style.
